There is a pressing issue related to biological factors that influence medical workers’ health and cause risks of hospital-acquired infections including those occurring among patients. Given that, we applied conventional techniques to perform microbiological examinations aimed at detecting and identifying microorganisms that circulate in the air inside hospitals. Microorganisms detected in the air in areas where medical personnel performed their working tasks were identified with chromogenic nutrient media and microbiological analyzers. To fully characterize microorganisms, we performed certain tests that allowed determining how sensitive the detected strains were to common anti-bacterial preparations. As a result, we revealed that priority strains detected in the air inside medical organizations were those belonging to Staphylococcaceae and Micrococcaceae families. These microorganisms caused high risks of purulent septic infections. We also detected bacteria that belonged to normal human microflora such as Acinetobacterspp...
